Abstract. Quite a common problem during training the classifier is a small number of samples in the training database, which can significantly affect the obtained results. To increase them, data augmentation can be used, which generates new samples based on existing ones, most often using simple transformations. In this paper, we propose a new approach to generate such samples using image processing techniques and discrete interpolation method. The described technique creates a new image sample using at least two others in the same class. To verify the proposed approach, we performed tests using different architectures of convolution neural networks for the ship classification problem.
